This will help your body to get used to the stretches and poses that you’ll be working on as you move forward in your journey. Your suppleness will start to improve and you will start to see the benefits within 3 or 4 weeks.

Yoga fun fact;
There are over 100 styles of Yoga – These types include Iyengar, Hatha, Yin, Kriya as well as other styles rising in popularity such as Aerial Yoga and Hot Yoga.

To end, just explore what way is the best for you as a new Yogi.

If you’re new to yoga or new to practicing on your own, it’s a good idea to make sure you’re doing it safely and getting into positions that won’t hurt you. If you are doing it at home, don’t be afraid to rewind or pause an online class so you can take as many watches as you need to get it right and check out what your teacher is doing. If you’re flowing on your own without an online class, cross-reference your postures with books, websites like MyYogateacher who have a free trial or YouTube tutorials by teachers like Yoga with Adrienne.
